    Romans 10:9-10 "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."

    The answer to the question "What must I do to be saved?”
    is “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved”

    As an outward sign of an inward change, and because Jesus commanded it.

    When people read the story about Paul, Silas, and the jailer they never take into consideration that Paul most likely reiterated on the requirements for salvation. The full details of that story were not recorded. Believing is the first step. Believing is great but what good is it if that person doesn’t abide in Christ and Christ does not abide in him? What good is it to that person if he doesn’t have love for others? These are also requirements for salvation. Did Paul and Silas say nothing else to the jailer and his family after telling the jailer to believe? Did they not share the gospel with them, or did they just say believe, then immediately dragged them to the river and dunk them in and went on their merry way?

    Love for others etc is evidence of salvation, not a requirement of salvation.

    Eph 2:8
    For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

    42 And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” 43 And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

    The shortest conversion prayer ever?

    Let me first ask a question.

    Do you consider yourself to be Saved, being of the Eastern Orthodox faith?

    We do not say that we are "saved". We say that we are "being saved".

    That doesn’t make any sense at all. If the evidence isn’t present then the person won’t receive salvation, hence it IS required to receive salvation.

    “If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”
    ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:2‬ ‭NASB‬‬

    “"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. "This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭15:1-14‬ ‭NASB‬‬
